Rhinoplasty – Nose Surgery Improving the Balance of Your Facial Features

There are a number of reasons a person considers a nose job or Rhinoplasty. Some have trouble breathing due to a structural abnormality while others simply do not like the way their nose looks due to genetics or injury. Rhinoplasty can correct the physiological issues as well as bring symmetry to a persons face. A skilled board certified plastic surgeon can help you achieve facial harmony and relieve breathing problems associated with a misshaped nose.

The nose has both an aesthetic and a physiological purpose. Physiologically, it is our main avenue through which we breathe. Aesthetically, the nose is a central focus of our face, providing balance and harmony to our facial features. The shape of the nose helps one to breathe properly, so if there are any abnormalities, either because of genetics or prior injury, a person may experience trouble breathing and snoring. In a similar way, when there is injury to the nose or some kind of abnormality the symmetry of ones face can be thrown off. Rhinoplasty procedures can be used to remedy nose abnormalities no matter what the cause.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose or would like to discuss how Rhinoplasty can help relieve your breathing problems, schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Recovering From Abdominoplasty – What to Expect After a Tummy Tuck

During your abdominoplasty consultation your board certified plastic surgeon will explain what you can expect before during and after your procedure. Recovering from abdominoplasty takes time and it is important to follow the directions given to you by your surgeon very closely. Here are a few things you can expect during recovery from tummy tuck surgery.

Upon waking up from the procedure, you will feel very groggy and your abdomen will be swollen. It is important that if you feel any discomfort you take your pain medication. Waiting until the pain is unbearable will only slow the healing process and may actually require you to take more pain medication to get the pain to subside. As time passes the pain and swelling will go down. After a few days the swelling should be almost gone and you should be left with some bruising.

You will be given direction as to what you can and shouldn’t do in the weeks after surgery. It is important to follow these directions even if you feel ok to limit the risk of post-op complications. There will be restrictions on movement, directions on showering and changing the dressings and how and when to take medications. My Plastic Surgeon USA can not stress enough the importance of closely following your surgeons directions. Doing so will not only lower the risk of complication but also give you the fastest recovery time.

The details of all post op care will be explained thoroughly before your procedure giving you the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns you may have. Abdominoplasty is a serious surgery. It is important to remember that recovery takes time.
